until you get a load of the new gridlock where he would kill every single bill. do you remember what president obama said before the election? i'll remind you don't worry here it comes. my hope, my expectation is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal beating obama does not make much sense because i'm not running again that we can start getting some cooperation again. hate to do it to you but wrong again, bob. it doesn't look like you're going to get a lot of cooperation. but then the radical wing of the republican party said no the republicans are being too soft and boehner is being too light on the president. his grand bargain proposal the republican counter offer to the extent that it can be interpreted from the hazy details now available is a dud. it's utterly unacceptable. it is bad policy and bad economics. that's the heritage foundation. they're saying it's too liberal boehner's proposal. that's funny. >> to think that the fever will have broken, you have this sort of tea party wing of the party controlling their party. i've said this before, what we need

not successfully negotiated a single new trade agreement during the first four years of the obama administration. and this administration has not yet asked congress for a renewal of trade promotion authority despite the fact that that t.p.a. expired over five years ago. the cost of inaction on trade is high because today we live in a global economy where american producers rely on access to foreign markets. more than 95% of global consumers live outside the united states. consider that in 1960 exports accounted for only 3.6% of u.s. g.d.p. today exports account for 12.5% of our g.d.p. exports of u.s. goods and services support over 10 million american jobs. if we do not aggressively pursue new market opening agreements on behalf of american workers, we will see new export opportunities go to foreign businesses and foreign workers. so while i'm pleased that we're considering pntr today, i hope that president obama in his second term will recognize the potential for increased trade opportunities through a more aggressive trade agenda. i look forward to the president signing this legislation into l
